The Office of the President of the Gambia, Adama Barrow, has announced that he had declared Friday, December 1, 2017, as a public holiday throughout the Gambia in honour of "Maulud Nabi", locally called "Gamo" to commemorate the birth of Prophet Muhammad.

The aforementioned announcement that Friday, December 1, 2017, had been declared as a public holiday throughout the Gambia to commemorate the birth of Prophet Muhammad, is in line with the announcement, a decade ago (01-Sep-2009), by then President Yaya Jammeh and the Gambian Supreme Islamic Council (SIC), that from then on the dates of Muslim public holidays would be calculated in line with the Umm al-Qura calendar used by Saudi Arabia (which does not observe a public holiday for the Prophet's Birthday).
